About Us

Shopping small, shopping local

You may have seen the social media post doing the rounds

“Everytime you support a small business, an actual person does a little dance”

And we couldn’t agree more! Here at We are Food we believe strongly in this, and hope we can inspire and promote a spirit of shopping locally. The case is clear and the stats are in, shopping locally, meaning buying from suppliers who work and produce as close to you as possible, is better all round. Better for the environment (think less travel miles, fewer emissions, more sustainable, local raw materials) better for minimizing poverty in your community (think job creation, less begging, less crime) and increased economic, creative & intellectual growth (think more taxes to spend on community programmes, more entrepreneurs, more awareness of the arts)

So we’ll continue to stand on our soap box and sing this song, shop as local as you can, ask questions, strive for better and let every cent you spend be a vote for a community you want.
